You’ll need elbow room for this plant as it stretches to 12-15’ wide, its height half that. These small urn-shaped flowers are interesting in their own right close up, but a fully blooming plant is a noticeable display in late winter with the flower clusters hanging down like tassels. Stachyurus praecox doesn’t have any common name. By the way, any time you see the word ‘praecox’, it’s referring to an early blooming plant. New species of Stachyurus are coming out of China, one being evergreen and there is a variegated form available too.
